Looking for other Linux distributions? We do not plan to offer other Linux distributions. We recommend using Docker if you'd like to build using other distributions with the hosted virtual environments. Alternatively, you can leverage [self-hosted runners] and fully customize your environment to your needs.
Where is the macOS source? We are in the process of preparing our macOS source to live in this repo so we can take contributions from the community. Until then, we appreciate your patience and ask you continue to make tool requests by filing issues.
In general, these are the guidelines we consider when deciding what to pre-install:
We typically deploy weekly updates to the software on the virtual environments.For some tools, we always install the latest at the time of the deployment; for others,we pin the tool to specific version(s).
